    My roots suck nutrients 

    from the rot in the mud.

     

    Water is my world;

    its skin, my cloak. 

    I thirst for light.

     

    When young

    my bud strove to open 

    in the gloaming of pre-dawn,

    but shrunk in fear and closed 

    at the blinding bright zenith of day.

     

    My adult-self rose in the dark,

    became an open bowl of petals, 

    but again the burning noon turned me back.

     

    I discover my being in middle-age, 

    heady and fragrant,

    but already wilting.

     

    Perhaps you scent my aroma

    and linger a while by the lake where I bloom.

     

    And tomorrow, too soon, 

    I will be but a dried out pod.


    Soon I will rot back into the mud,

    at peace,

    no trace to remain.
